After all of that racing, dnf'ing, and recovering, it feels great to be back to low and slow (training at low hr). I think this is why I have always hit max burnout during the summer months.
Every time I have gone out not low and slow in the past month, I have had bad runs. I did 8 this morning (77 minutes, kind of slow) and 10 last night. I actually wore the hr monitor beacuse SOME PEOPLE could not believe I ran a low hr workout with out. (just kidding). Anyway,
avg 138 hr
Best part, I was able to get up and run 8 miles 10 hours later.
So it will be a lot of long runs at this pace, some hill workouts, and a few tempo runs.
I might be running all night at Afton on Friday to get in 100k training. Not sure if I can pull this off yet. It should be interesting if I do. I don't know how I would fare on loop #4 out there.
